I have to say, I actually do find his jokes, even the dreaded Yellow Dog Story, funny.

David Gans attributed this (probably offensive to some) joke to Bobby, but I haven't found a recording yet. Anyway, here goes:

What do you call a psychic midget who's just escaped from prison?

A small medium at large.

Har har har. Share your favorite lame Bobby jokes/banter, or really any pseudo-funny Dead banter, here if you are so obliged.

I remember watching "day of the dead" on MTV in the summer of 1987. The played clips of the dead at anaheim performing West LA and masterpiece. For some bizaree reason, Weir is wearing a madonna tour shirt.

Bobby, in an awful British accent: "I say! My dog has no nose!"

Phil, in an equally awful British accent: "No nose? How does he smell?"

Bobby: "Bleedin' awful!"

Ba-dum-dum!!

"favorite????" NONE

Worst: showing up at Jerry's house with the other ones to subject Jerry to an "intervention."

You mean like one of the ones that almost worked according to Phils book?

What's lame about that? Hypocritical? Perhaps. But then again I don't think any of the other members weren't ever bathing and were basically rotting themselves to death to the same degree.

johnnyonthespot: "almost worked(?)" Is that anything like, "a little pregnant(?)" I won't go into any further explanation here. A question was asked and an answer was provided. "Free speech."

[On a different note: did I include song lists with those discs? I seem to recall one or two may not have had a list due to time constraints trying to get to a post office. Let me know. Thanks.]

Yeah you included the songlists. Thanks man!

Hey, I was just excercising free speech as well. Just wondering why you think it's so lame to want to save a friends life, or anyones for that matter. What I personally think is lame is that no one put the brakes to the whole thing to give the guy a break. But then again they ALL felt an obligation to the crew/etc. and from what I understand they was plenty of Heroin coming his way in his solo band.

johnnyonthespot: I just learned something finally after two years of posting here --- there comes a time to "put the brakes on" and "Stop!" And then continue the discussion via email or in the Grok ........oh......there I go again .....I mean, continue the discussion via email. If you see my name in an email, feel free to just hit reply and say "Not interested" and I will understand. Or post the same here. Does this sound rational? And, yes, you are correct about exercsing "free speech;" I apologize for how that must have sounded when you read it.

I sincerely hope you are doing well, --- AshesRising

Oh man. Ohhhhhh man. Bobby, what are you doing?

I was signing up for classes a few weeks ago and remembered that there was going to be a course on the Grateful Dead offered by the history department. I about shit myself when I saw the instructor's name listed as one "Robert Weir." I had all these mental images of him telling AWFUL jokes before class until I realized that this Robert Weir is not actually our Bob Weir. Confusing, but alas, also disappointing.
